Autostarting web pages
In an earlier version of Firefox I loved a certain function: When I typed a word into the browser bar Firefox would mosltly start the web-page that belonged to that word. ('yahoo' would open http://yahoo.com) Now I only see the google results...
Do I have to change something in the preferences or is it completely gone? Thanks in advance!!
